"I think Kansas is flatter. I have driven across many times and the ONLY hills you find they had to build so traffic could get over the interstate."

"Thanks John. I might just start with a Walmart battery since right now we really don't plan on much dry camping. We will save a bit of money up front and get us going sooner. Money of course is a bit tight so even in rebuilding the camper we…"

"Ok. The battery that is missing must be for coach power. The wires off the solenoid are a lot smaller gauge. So should that one be a deep cycle? That is if that is what it is."

Battery info please

Hi all. I am finally preparing to drag the beasty home. I thought I would try to put a charge on the dad battery and was a bit confused when I really looked. It has a battery on the passenger side hooked up andy attached to a standard Ford solenoid. The driver side has a spot for another battery that looks to be attached to a standard Ford solenoid. ??? Is one of theses spots the engine battery and the other for the generator? Should one be deep cycle? Would the deep cycles be somewhere else? I…See More

New Bee first post to say hi.

Hi all, I am a newbee. I found this website while searching for general repairs and rebuilds of mid 80's class C's. I don't have mine yet but will in a couple weeks. My neighbor has an old searay boat with an inboard motor that he wants me to fix. For fixing it he is going to give me his 1983? ( I think) rockwood Ina ford chassis. I will be taking lots of pictures to document the rebuild for my purposes and will share them here if everyone would like to see them. Anyway I plan on picking your… Continue

Yes, we painted it. It wasnt hard at all. Watched a couple of you tube videos first, for some tips that were very helpful. It was very satisfying to see the difference (profile pix shows the "before"). Thanks, yes, the birch in this trailer is amazing! Re-shallac'd it. Not hard either. Again, you tube videos are very helpful (dont remember which ones).
